Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE had recently informed those in Canada that they were working with for the tour that the official reason for the postponement was due to weather and logistics concerns. The main issue reportedly revolved around WWE having a house show event scheduled to take place in Edmonton on January 24th and them needing to bring all of their trucks and equipment for that show.
